Paradeisia, also: Paradisia or Paradissia (Greek: Παραδείσια) is a Greek village and a municipal district located around 13 km southwest (old: 11 km) from Megalopoli and about 2 to 3 km from an interchange with the GR-7/E65 (Kalamata - Megalopoli - Tripoli) or the new road. Paradeisia is also in the municipality of Megalopoli. Until the early to mid-20th century, the village was known as Kourtaga or Courtaga. Paradeisia is connected with the old GR-7. It also serves a road to Leontari and Sparta.
Paradeisia is situated in a mountainous setting. The geography consists of farmlands that are mainly groves and pastures with fruits and vegetables and other crops that cover the village and sporadically in the north and east, forests around the area covering over 40 to 50% of the area. The mountains dominate the remainder of the area.
The highest recorded population were in the early to mid-20th century, the population has been falling since the mid-20th century, particularly after the two conflicts, the World War II and the Greek Civil War as people went for a better livestyle and jobs elsewhere in Greece and the other parts of the world (mainly North America), its decline has rarely slowed in the late-20th century. The census between 1991 and 2001 saw an increase instead of a decline and the population has revived some of its last levels.
Other than its population history, Paradeisia saw construction of the Greek National Road 7 to the north between 1998 and 2002 and was opened to traffic after the completion. It runs in the north side and will become a superhighway standard. It also features the Paradeisia Bridge which is located to the northwest, its total length is 400 m.
